Rhode Island Real Choices Long-Term Services and Supports Resource Mapping Final Report
April 22, 2010
The Hilltop Institute carried out a resource mapping project for the state of Rhode Island as part of the state’s efforts to create a more accessible system of long-term services and supports under their federal Real Choice Systems Transformation grant. Hilltop interviewed state agency staff on their perceptions of service gaps and barriers to accessing the system of long-term services and supports; conducted a survey of providers of long-term services and supports in the state about current and future capacity to serve Rhode Islanders; and constructed a rebalancing model for projecting utilization and expenditures for Medicaid long-term services and supports through 2030. This report presents the results of these efforts.
